Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror: Volume Two

We rated this book:


Writers have been inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe for nearly two centuries. Be it his ghastly tales of supernatural justice or his early efforts at investigative fiction, Poe’s creative output is the stuff of legend. And decades upon decades later, people are still finding new ways to twist, reinvent, and reimagine Poe’s stories for a new generation of readers.

Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror: Volume Two is a mix of short stories and graphic novels, allowing for everything from sly satire and outright comedy to horrific pastiche and adaptations that really dial up the macabre. Everything from The Gold-Bug and The Raven to The Conqueror Worm get a chance at a new life in these pages.

Arguably the most effective stories are those that have something to say about Poe as well as his works, and yes, the author himself appears frequently, either as narrator or protagonist. And although the stories are hit-or-miss depending on your tastes, you are bound to find something that tickles your sinister fancy in this collection.

Love and violence, pride and fear, you’ll find all of it and more in Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter of Terror: Volume Two.
